Postdoctoral Training Opportunity - Cognitive Neuroscience

The Braga Lab is seeking a postdoctoral trainee to join their team in the Department of Neurology at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. Under the mentorship of Rodrigo M. Braga, PhD, the lab uses and develops neuroimaging techniques to reveal the brain’s detailed network organization within individuals. Research topics broadly address the role of distributed networks in cognition in humans, including the nature of specializations for language, recollection and mental imagery.

Trainees will have the opportunity to lead and assist projects involving high spatiotemporal resolution techniques, including dense-sampling or “precision” functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG), and high-field fMRI. Trainees will have opportunities to participate and lead in data collection and analysis, mentorship of students and staff, presentations at internal, national and international meetings, and publication of results.


Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent doctoral degree) in neuroscience or a related field, from an accredited institution. Trainees must receive their degree by the start of training or have received their degree no more than five years ago. Candidates must be a U.S. citizen or be eligible to work in the United States (after obtaining an appropriate visa).

Desired skills

Strong candidates will have prior experience with programming and neuroimaging (broadly defined), including data collection and analysis, as well as conducting behavioral experiments.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter briefly describing their research interests and qualifications, curriculum vitae, as well as the names and contact information for three references to Ania Holubecki at:
